South Africa is a favorite for holidaymakers who enjoy a varied itinerary full of adventure and culture. There is safari where big game can be seen, beaches, vineyards, dry deserts and of course the flat-topped Table Mountain.

Some of the unmissable things one can do while in the country is a safari visit to Kruger National Park, which is populated by big game including lions, elephants, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes and many more.

For water lovers, there is the famed water cage diving where one can experience a close encounter with one of the most feared sea creatures, the Great White shark. For the more adventurous, there is the possibility of diving with tiger & bull sharks without the cage.

South Africa is also well known for its lovely beaches perfect for surfing, swimming, taking a stroll or to just relax. Some of the best beaches are found in Durban, Cape Town and Northern KZN.

All these activities will cost some money and it is understandable that not all travelers will have the budget to allow them to experience everything they want to. As a tourist one cannot always get into paid employment but there are ways money worries can be overcome. Many people use online casino to earn money while traveling.

Table Mountain, one of Cape Town's most prominent landmarks is must for adventure seekers and a great place to go hiking. The mountain rises 3500 feet into the air and if hiking is not an option then a cable car is a good especially if weather changes make hiking more challenging.
